This beer has its orgin in the Bavarian beer type ’festbier’ or ’oktoberfestbier’. Like ’festbier’ and ’vienna style beer’, Nils Oscar Kalasöl is of a somewhat darker type. The Nils Oscar Kalasöl is produced with both münchenermalt, dark caramelmalt, chocolatmalt and some roasted barley. The choice of hops is a mix of four kinds where the most characteristic are brittish fuggles, american cascade and czech saaz.
Kalasöl is a rounded beer with a mildly roasted breadish character. It can be recommended together with heavy foods, like joints of roast meat, spicy stews, broiled meat and fowl.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2002
Beautiful amber colour. Original aroma of malt and other grains. Interesting flavour, of malt, quite aromatic hop, other grains (unmalted?), also similar to some bitter or Scottish brews. Well hopped palate, with pretty good aromas, but with a less pleasant dry bitterness at the very end.

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Bottle. Nice head that disappeared to quick. Dark, copper color. Aroma with lots of malt, but also delicious fruity hints. The taste has some roasted element, but mostly malt-flavour, with a little alcohol in it.Quite balanced. Finishes with a light bitter aftertaste. Its a shame I only bought one bottle. (050825)

TBone (15622) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2005
Bottled (BB 03/2005)
Dark copper brown with small off-white head. Excellent aroma of barley/bread with hints of caramel. Medium-bodied, malty with good balance of bread-like barley and soft flowery hops. Also roasted tones found. Balanced märzen (one of the best in this style), only finish is lacking some extra tickles. As in this style often, gives a long dry aftertaste to mouth.

Dedollewaitor (15325) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
Slight hazy orange with a solid white head. Aroma is sweet of malts (caramel & bread), sugar & honey. Taste is of the same and some spices & a nice dosis of hops (citrus/flowers). Medium body & carbonation. Good lacings. Nice bitter end. A very good Vienna!!!

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 26, 2012
The beer is a dark amber color with an off-white head. The nose is slightly toasty with some caramel and toffee, a bit of bread as well. Very mild hop aroma, just a bit of floral and earthy notes. The flavor has no real character to it. Some bland malt flavors of toast and stale bread. Minimal hop notes and no discernible bitterness. Very bland.
